    create a password protected disk image, & put your files in that.

    Well the one way I can think about...

    Put a Disk Image on it (use the Disk Utility application) and put a password on it, but don't store the password in the keychain, so it's asked everything. That way you can still have the drive connected, just remember to un-mount the image, and you can still have normal files on the drive.

    Cheers,
